In the mountains of Reims, between the villages of Rilly-la-Montagne, Chigny-Les-Roses, and Ludes, lies one of the most prestigious lineages of champagne winegrowers in all of France. A family that for more than 250 years has been perfecting the art of their trade, with a seal of dedication visible on each hectare of their land.
Jean-Jacques Cattier and his son Alexandre are, respectively, the twelfth and thirteenth generation of champagne winemakers. Together with their select team of 18 people, they have maintained the family’s dream of being the highest quality champagne in the entire region, not only by managing the vineyards at the highest level of certification but by being a high-quality business model environmental value in HVE by the French government; but above all for its delivery in the details of each bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac, which are covered in metal and finished with the hand application of French pewter labels. One person can only complete 20 bottles per hour and for this reason, no two bottles are the same.
Because Armand de Brignac has his quality in the details, a hallmark of his wine production is that only the top portion, the freshest of the cuvées, is used to produce the best champagne possible. This strict selection ensures that the juice comes out of the fruit with a lot of character, with a smooth texture and well-balanced acidity. An exclusive touch in its process is the blend of three vintages, merging the unique character of three different harvests, maintaining that powerful lineage that is maintained from creation to creation.

Each bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac is finished with a single dosage, which is obtained from the best wines of the vintage, which have been aged for a year in new French oak. This twist to winemaking brings a subtle complexity to the finished product, including hints of pastry, vanilla, and toast.
Armand de Brignac has five products that individually stand out in the market as a bottle of essential champagne to make your events as brilliant as gold; Champagne Armand de Brignac’s first product, the Brut Gold remains the most iconic cuvée in the range. It is an excellent example of the traditional blending process associated with the creation of champagne; made with three vintages that come from the most praised terroirs of the region, it expresses a fresh and vibrant character and offers a smooth texture.
The name is a memory of love from the past, being that 50 years ago, Nelly Cattier, mother of Jean-Jacques, read a novel with a character called <<M. de Brignac>>. It struck him as a very noble name and he registered it for use with a bottle of new wine in the future. This record fell into oblivion for a long time, but Jean-Jacques decided, at the beginning of the new century, to pay homage to his mother by using that very special name for the new “tête de cuvée” of the family.
Armand de Brignac has proudly left its golden mark on the world as one of the essential bottles in every international event, even being requested by world icons from all branches of the industry. Leaving high its goal of showing the world a product of the highest quality from the most prestigious crops of the family.
